WATCH: Hot Press meets Colm Mac Con Iomaire @ Eurosonic

The former Frames man is no stranger to the continental showcase, but it's as a solo performer that he's now making waves. Olaf Tyaransen catches up with the Choice Prize nominee in Groningen

Having bagged a Choice Prize nomination for the fantastic And Now The Weather, 2016 may be the year that Colm Mac Con Iomaire bursts into the top tier of Irish acts.

Of course, he's no stranger to the big time, given his time with The Frames, but talking to Olaf Tyaransen backstage at Eurosonic, he outlines what's changed since flying solo, and discusses movie projects in the pipeline.
